Anna's Kitchentable  Kouroulakia Recipe

Guest Recipe: Anna's Kitchentable Kouroulakia

Fellow Cypriot @annas_kitchentable's Instagram feed always gets us hungry and dreamy. This is the latest recipe she prepared using Colive Exra Virgin Olive Oil...

Here is what @annas_kitchentable says about this incredible recipe:

"These delicious little biscuits are a family favourite!

Usually eaten around Easter and Christmas, they have got a lovely orange hint to them, not too sweet, but delicious to have with a cup of tea or a Greek coffee.

They’re perfect for vegans, which means for us Greeks they’re great for our pre-Easter fast too!

This recipe will make a batch of about 15 biscuits dependent on how large or small you make them, but they’re lovely to double up the recipe and to pop in a little bag, tie a ribbon round and gift to friends and family your visiting."


  • 100ml Colive Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • Grated Rind of 1 Orange
  • 100ml Fresh Orange Juice
  • 190g Caster Sugar

  • 3 tablespoon Brandy
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 370g-400g All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) Cinnamon
  • 1 Pinch Salt
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds



  1. Preheat the oven to 180*c
  2. In a bowl add all the wet ingredients, along with the sugar and orange zest and mix well to combine
  3. In another bowl add the baking soda and powder, the cinnamon and salt plus 370g of the flour – keep the other 30g of flour to the side for now.
  4. Add the dry and wet ingredients together and mix until the dough starts to thicken, then mix with your hands. As soon as it’s mixed stop as if you over-mix them you will end up with tough biscuits.
  5. If your mixture is still too sticky, then add a bit more flour till the dough is no longer sticking to your hands.
  6. Let the dough rest for 15-20 minutes in the fridge
  7. In batches start to shape your dough, this is completely personal choice, I personally like to roll them into log shapes and then connect the 2 edges so they make a circle, but you can braid them or have them simple as balls, once shaped brush them lightly with a little milk or plant based alternative if you’re fasting
  8. Lightly toss them into a bowl of sesame seeds till coated and then place onto a lined baking tray and press them down lightly. Keep a little room between each as they will rise and grow a little whilst baking
  9. Bake them for 20 minutes or so until they are a light golden brown.
  10. Cool, pop the kettle on and enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee!
